Beauty trends; who understands anything anymore? Each season requires a different color of eye shadow, and almost every month brands release new collections. If we had to follow and buy everything, we wouldn’t have time for anything else and our wallets would surely cry. The alternative? Look for must-have pieces. Let’s see the focus of this 2020, with pieces that you may need next year too!
As you know, this year’s pastel colors are back in vogue, bright skin with a healthy and not completely opaque appearance and eyebrows no longer maniacally drawn but thick and natural. Considering these as the main trends, we must not forget ton sur ton make-up, coral or glossy lipsticks, and blush that give a bonne mine effect.
Let’s start talking about the eyes. We can’t absolutely ignore ton sur ton makeup, a make-up technique that consists of using primarily a color in all steps, from eye shadow to lipstick and finally the blush. In this sense, therefore, we tend to prefer natural tones that can be declined both in the warmer shades and in the softer ones, for example, peach and apricot pink that allows you not to give up a personal touch as a bright hint on the eyelid. Therefore, the perfect 2020 purse will not be without palettes such as “Soft Glam” by ABH, “Mini Nude Palette” by Natasha Denona, and one of the timeless “Naked” by Urban Decay.
Smokey eyes are a “bolder” alternative, with pastel tones and a predominance of blue in all shades. In this case, we can obtain two effects: on the one hand, a definitely more refined and bon ton look thanks to pastel colors, on the other hand, a more gritty and striking look with blues. For this look, we can use “Pastel Obsession” and “Mercury Retrograde” by Huda Beauty or the “Ultimate Shadow Palette” by NYX Professional Make-up. Otherwise, predominantly blue palettes such as “Blue Blood Palette” by Jeffree Star, “18th Ya Away Palette” by Morphe, and “Denim Cover Shot Palette” by Smashbox.
Speaking of cheeks and lips we can certainly find a correspondence with the trend of ton sur ton, the favorite shades are definitely the most natural but characterized by more eccentric hints on the shades of orange. Specifically, for the cheeks, it is pointed by a glossy and bright appearance almost to be wet. For the lips, you can opt for something more opaque or fresher and shinier like a gloss. The must-have products for the cheeks are “Orgasm” by Nars and “Galifornia” by Benefit Cosmetics, or for a wetter “GLASSY” by EspressOh. For the lips, we suggest some glosses such as “Gloss Bomb” by Fenty Beauty and “Lip Maximizer” by Dior, while for the lovers of matte looks there is no doubt the whole range “Pillowtalk” by Charlotte Tillbury.
It may seem trivial, but the eyebrows are fundamental, able to define even by themselves the style of the look from bolder and stronger to more natural and soap and water. Precisely because of this importance, there has been a reversal of the trend from graphic and super defined eyebrows to jaunty, thicker, and more natural eyebrows. Among the products therefore strongly trendy we identify brow gels such as Anastasia Beverly Hills and Benefit Cosmetics.
All these new beauty trends suggest we have a fresh and light trousse characterized by a light foundation like the Nars “Sheer Glow Foundation” or a colored cream like “Tinted Moisturizer Neutral Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30” by Laura Mercier, a light blush to give color to the cheeks and maybe to the eyes and finally a slightly colored mascara and gloss to complete a fresh look suitable for the summer season without giving up a glamorous look.
